The girls, whose names were given as Eden, 15, Gifti, 14 and Mihiret, 14 – together with an older girl, named Deborah – were arrested in the mainly Muslim region, following the distribution of a Christian book apparently seeking to counter widely-circulated polemics against Christianity by a well-known Islamic critic.
